Reader reviewed by Julie M. Prince

Samantha must learn to control her temper before she misses her chance to explore the worlds grandest canyon. If her mom could just understand how frustrating a big sister is, she wouldnt threaten Sam with the possibility of staying behind during the familys first vacation since dad died.

After all, it isnt Sams fault her feet tend to whip out and kick the people who make her mad. Especially That Kid Richard at school. The one who tells everyone Sam has rocks in her head.

Mad Scientist, Samantha Hansen, is ab-so-lutely precociousa delight from her rock-filled head to her errant feet.

Shes lovable and full of the kind of spirit that makes for a lasting character. Nancy Viau weaves in seamless science lessons, sure to slide by young readers as casual plot, until they pop up and help them during science tests.

This is a fun middle grade book perfect for all chapter book readers who love to connect with quirky characters. Readers will identify with Sams temper and her need to control it in order to get the things she wants.

Science-loving kids and school librarians take note!
